Whether you use Twitter for social marketing or not, I’m sure you have at least heard of it and maybe even wondered what in the heck a tweet is, right? Today, I thought I would give you an update of just how Texans United uses Twitter and exactly why we do it.
First of all, Twitter is yet another popular site where people go to promote themselves, their wares, their writings, or their customers. Here at United we spend an unbelievable amount of time sending out tweets with links to Texansunited.com. In fact, as of today we have “tweeted” over 7,300 times.
Now, of course, the question is whether or not this “does any good,” right?
Well, since our job is to drive people to the site in any way that we can so that people are exposed to our towns and the businesses represented there, I’d have to say that we are doing a very good job since our stats show that in the past thirty days, our tweets have sent over 490 visits to Texans United!
But…you still want to know what a tweet looks like, don’t you? Although, they do look slightly better on Twitter, with a profile picture, what you see below is two tweets. One provides a link to Dennis Marken’s Vietnam memories, and the other is a link to Dublin’s historic grist mill.
Of course, the max numbers of characters in a single tweet is 140, so each is very short. The number sign in front of key words is called a hashtag. The hashtag causes these key words to come up in a search anyone might be doing on a certain topic. Anyone who has a Twitter account can click on the links to find us.
And that, my friends is what Twitter is all about…promotions, promotions, promotions. Here at Texansunited.com we do everything possible to showcase our small Texas towns, their people, and their businesses!
